In Dix Hills, New York, with family by her side, our beloved mother and grandmother, Beverly
Jane Mayers Paulsen left us on September 6, 2022 to join her late husband, Louis A. Paulsen.
Beverly was born in San Francisco, California
on May 6, 1928 and was a proud third generation San Franciscan.
Beverly graduated from Lincoln High School and then went on to be the first member of her
family to attend college, graduating from San Francisco City College. She would frequently
recount her escapades with her friends, Alice Clayton Lahl (dec) and Phyllis Beetz
Barrows(dec), and growing up during World War II in San Francisco.
In 1967, Louis obtained a position in New York which resulted in the family move to Long Island
where Beverly has resided ever since. She had a rich and full life enjoying traveling the world
with her husband, Lou. Following his passing she continued traveling with family and friends
which provided her great joy.
Family dinners with cocktails and good food where she was surrounded by her children and
grandchildren brought her immense delight and contentment. Her fondness of Happy Hour and
her enjoyment of champagne or a Manhattan was well known. Beverly also found great
pleasure playing card and board games. She played a wicked game of Rummikub with family
and friends up until the end. She was also an active member of Deer Park Presbyterian Church
supporting the Angel Tree which Lou founded which provided Christmas gifts to the children of
Beverly will be remembered for her profound love of animals, especially dogs. She now joins her
furry family members: Buddy, Daisy, Cassie, Mandy, Buffy, Wolf, Buffy and Dinah.
She was deeply grateful to Lori and Joe for opening their home to her during her last few
months. She enjoyed immensely every moment being surrounded by her family and the Vallario
furry family members, Fusilli and Luna, who provided her with joy, peace and constant
companionship, rarely leaving her side. Beverly and her family also are thankful for Hospice
and especially Diane, Bev’s aide, who provided loving care for Bev and support for the family
during this difficult time.
Beverly is survived by her daughters Kathleen Paulsen of California, Sandra Paulsen Grech
(John) of Fort Salonga, New York, Lori Paulsen Vallario (Joseph) of Dix Hills, New York and son
James Paulsen (Janice) of Lake Ronkonkoma, New York and grandson Paul Grech (Lauren),
and granddaughters Jessica Vallario (fiancée Kevin Donovan) and Leah Vallario.
You leave us with many happy memories.
